Update and A New Look

It’s been awhile since I last ‘blogged’, which may make it look as if I haven’t been very busy. Even Twitter has suffered in the last couple of months. Aside from work and everyday life’s needs keeping me busy, I have been working on a couple of different projects (along with the change of the look and feel of this site), that I hope to have done and out to the masses by Halloween, (we will see if that works out the way I hope).

I am working on three different writing projects personally, and I am also working with Kathryn Stelher, who is finishing her first romance novel Time Doesn’t Wait, to be published under the  Ace-Hil-Ink brand. I’m not one for reading romance stories, but I do look forward to reading and helping with editing her final product. She plans on releasing it this December.

Of the projects that I am working on, the one that is taking a majority of my time is my Serialized Fiction Series Night Dreams. – A Dream-Psychologist takes in patients who are having horrific nightmares that feel so real and dangerous that they seek help in a psychologist who specializes in extreme nightmares. Dr. Rickettes has a talent, skill, or curse that helps him rid them of their nightmares –  I plan for each episode to be in the short story/novella range of 15,000 to 20,000 words. The first one, yet to be sub-titled is already in the 13,000-word neighborhood.

I am also working on finishing my novella Floor Four. This story was released in my book, Purgatory-13 Tales of the Macabre, last October. The abrupt ending, (no spoilers here), is what I am working on, to be released as a stand-alone story. It is by far the longest of the 13 stories in Purgatory and was originally planned to be its own novella. But as I was in the middle of writing it last year, I decided to put it in the book as a teaser. Again, I hope to have this out by Halloween.

My third project is a shift in genre. It is a baseball story that I am dedicating to my father. He taught me everything i know about the great sport.  I have no deadline on this one as I am taking my time to take in all of the accounts of my personal experiences. It will be  fiction with a lot of real life experiences mixed in.

That’s the update. I plan on posting more often. I hope your writing, reading, or whatever keeps you busy is going well!
(I also hope you like the new look of the website)

  1. I think the new look is great. Funny, it seems to be a pretty accurate depiction of what a writer’s mind would look like, if we could photograph it and share it with the world. Great job with the progress in your writing endeavors.
